Music Makes You?

Music Makes You is a co-operative of Hebden-based instrumental tutors who are excited to be offering a new range of online workshops in singing, guitar, ukulele or piano/keys.


The workshops are aimed at all levels of ability – complete novice to advanced – and will take place during evenings and/or weekends. The great thing about learning an instrument in an online workshop is there is absolutely no pressure to play or sing in front of other people. Plus, you can join in from the comfort of your own home.

All music or materials will be shared with you before each workshop – you just need access to Zoom, a spare hour, and a voice or instrument.

This project has been funded by Hebden Royd Town Council, and so you only have to make a donation of £5 per session if you feel able to.

If you’re interested, drop us an email at

If you want to have a chat about it to find out more, you can send us your phone number and we’ll call you back.


Have a great weekend and stay safe
